The electrical connections for washing machines and dryers must be located within 1.8m of the appliance. Although the minimum height of electrical outlets in a home is highly dependent on local building codes, both outlets should be positioned between 34 and 36 inches tall for simplicity.
The only NEC requirement is that you must be within 6 feet of a socket along a wall (12 between outlets, an uninterrupted wall distance of 2 feet or more, including the space measured around a corner, requires a socket (Ref. NEC 210.52).
If your dryer doesn’t need a neutral and is a 220v only device, you can use 102 and be code compliant. The only problem is to separate the neutral and the earth. IMHO, you are in a basement with the tips exposed, doing the work of putting in, repairing and moving the dryer.
If your washing machine drain fits into the drain properly, a washing machine drain valve is absolutely necessary. Allows air to pass through, preventing the possibility of a vacuum buildup that can interfere with water leaking out of the washing machine.
The washing machine drain is operated by an electric pump, which conveys the water from the cleaning basket through a drain hose at the bottom of the machine to the domestic sewer, from where it is drained.
6 ways to avoid drain hose overflow problems
When plugging in a new washing machine, someone looks for a convenient drain hose and simply installs a hose that leads to the washing machine. Lack of a siphon exposes the area to sewer smoke, and lack of ventilation results in sluggish operation and overflow of the drain. Washing machines, like all appliances, need a trap.
Indeed, there is no point in running the washing machine water into the wastewater treatment plant, as the plant is exposed as the largest landfill due to wear and tear. Just mix and use a biodegradable cleaner.
The National Electrical Code currently requires a 4-inch drywall outlet in all new home constructions. Existing families can still use 3-inch sockets. The switch to a 4-inch socket is due to an error in the design of the 3-pin socket. In a socket with 3 outputs, the ground and neutral conductors are on the same pin.
3 tight wires
For safety reasons and the fact that they are so cheap to replace, there is no point in repairing these dryers.
Connecting the new 4-pin cable
The typical cable used for a dry circuit is a 10/3 NM type cable with three insulated wires and a conductive ground wire for a total of four wires. The typical 220 or 240 volt electric dryer requires a special circuit, which means the circuit is not shared with any other device.
It’s 102 your welder wants with a sledgehammer. 103 is mainly used for home parts which have 4 pins on the socket, it also has a ground wire.
No, you can’t use it on your generator unless you just want to draw 120 volts from it.
10 meters is enough.
A 12 gauge cable requires a 20 amp circuit breaker for protection. It would be nice (if you follow all the rules for secondary control panels) to run a 10 gauge wire protected by a 30A circuit breaker to a secondary control panel and then run 12 gauge wire through each protected circuit breaker from a 20 A undercut.
